I went a little Swedish crazy.
Yes, I did.
While browsing the internet for Swedish activities – like a trip by the Swedish Society to the Shark Tank to watch a hockey game, I came across ALL SORTS OF GOODIES.
Like Beginning Swedish language classes through the Scandinavian School.
I’ve been trying to learn Swedish but it’s hard since I don’t practice speaking the language.
What I really need is people to practice my Swedish with.
I know there’s always The Swede.
But we mostly text and my ability to spell Swedish words is ATROCIOUS.
There are extra vowels in the Swedish language – å, ä, and ö.
They throw me for a loop.
Then, of course I found a link to a Danish Rye Bread Making class and I GOT ALL EXCITED.
Things to do that involve learning Scandinavian arts?
Sign me up!
There’s a MeetUp for Scandinavian crafts, food, and art coming up this weekend that I really want to go to and I got a personal invitation from the organizer.
The downside to all this is that although my DNA says I’m Scandinavian, my ancestry points definitively at Norway.
In the past 200 years I had relatives living in Norway.
So although I might have some Swedish in me (no jokes, folks), we’re now certain there’s a little Norwegian in me.
Nevertheless, I will pursue my interest in all things Swedish.
Especially The Swede.
And just for shits and giggles, I’m posting a picture of Norwegian women here.
Looks like I’m in good company!
